NEWPORT, R.I. – Salve Regina University students, faculty and staff will participate in a roundtable discussion examining how the 9/11 tragedy touched American politics, foreign policy and society.
“America One Decade After 9/11” will be held from 12:30-1:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 3 in the library at Ochre Court, 100 Ochre Point Ave. This event is not open to the public.
Several weeks ago, the university’s Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy asked the Salve Regina community and members of the public a simple question: “How has 9/11 touched your life?”
Responses have been personal, reflective and often provocative. In this roundtable, participants will begin with those reflections and then expand the dialogue. The discussion is not intended to a be a venue for personal reflections about the events of 9/11, but rather an open conversation about where we find ourselves as a nation, one decade later.
Participants will include Dr. Symeon Giannakos, director of the graduate program in international relations; Dr. Jim Ludes, executive director of the Pell Center; Dr. Timothy Neary, coordinator of the American studies program; and David Smith, director of the graduate program in administration of justice.
